Life is unpredictable, and situations are uncertain. Whether we chose to take risk, sometimes risky situations find us.
"God, what are you trying to teach me?"
Friends become foes. We face financial or marriage woes. The hand of the enemy seems to rise against us and we don't know which way to go. It's difficult to see the light, when darkness seems to consume you. You can't see the solutions of God because we become more focused on who it's happening to. Instead of searching for why is this happening. "God, what are you trying to teach me?"
Today is simple encouragement straight from heaven's throne.
As I was writing this blog, I saw a woman pacing the floor, mind racing, and asking, "When will it end? When will the foes and the woes stop coming up against me?" Not knowing the answer, all she does is cry.
"Don't testify about the brokenness, testify about his goodness."
The Lord is kind to his people. He knows our names, sees our tears and understands our fears. It's easy to focus on the problem, but I dare you to focus on the God that has the solution. When you come out of this place, don't testify about the brokenness, testify about his goodness.
The enemy plots all day long about how to kill, steal and destroy the people of God. Having this information, you must never get comfortable in your walk with Christ. Spiritual warfare is always at hand, waiting for the opportune time to creep in and take action. Ready to seize and arrest the fruits of the spirit that lie within you.
Satan is always trying to muzzle the praise and worship of God's people. If he can silence you, he knows it makes it difficult for you to have faith and confidence that you are coming out of that place of despair.
This title brings me to a familiar passage - Elijah and the widow. The woman had a handful of flour and a little oil in a jar just enough to bake for her and her son. She expected that to be their last meal and they would die.
In the midst of of her despair Elijah shows up asking for water and bread. Elijah prophetically speaks into the widow's life what the Lord has given him to say. Just when she thought it was the end, God provided for her, house for many days. (1 Kings 17:8-16)
That's why community is important. You need a spiritual covering, mentors and friends that can pick you up in the spirit. They are persons that can tap in because of their sensitivity to the Lord's voice and intercede for you and even show up to help you in your times of trouble. I hear the Lord saying, "Surround yourself with people that will hold you accountable to get up from the pit."
I don't know what you're facing today, but I know God is real, and he cares about you. The way it started is not how it will end. Your coming out twenty times better - next level: praise, worship, prayer, anointing, mantles, and influence.
I can only testify to this because it had to hit me before I can release the word of the Lord to you. Every word I release has to come from a place of authenticity and vulnerability.
This is a new season for you and a new day. Get ready to access the overflow straight from heavens throne. God is perfecting your concerns and turning around your situation.
Declare from a hard place, "IT WON'T END LIKE THIS!"
Whatever it is, remember it won't end like this!
